Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas - 21 Day Fix Style

One of my challengers shared this recipe with the group in our 30 Day challenge.  I changed it up a bit since I have been tracking my portions with the 21 Day Fix so I could make it easy track my containers.  This has the be the simplest recipe EVER!  When you read the instructions, you'll understand.

Ingredients:
3-4 chicken breasts (I put them in frozen)
4 cloves of pressed garlic
2 tsp of chili powder
2 tsp cumin
1 Tbsp. cilantro
4 bell peppers, any color (sliced)
1 large onion (sliced)
1 14 oz can of diced tomatoes (use a low sodium version or check out this easy recipe for stewed tomatoes - http://brooklynfarmgirl.com/2013/08/14/the-best-stewed-tomatoes-ever/)


Instructions:
Put all ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-6 hours.









If your time will allow it, add the bell peppers to the slow cooker in the last hour so they aren't too soggy.

When the cooking time is over, shred chicken with a fork.

To Serve:

Place 1 Red container of the chicken mixed with tomatoes and garlic onto a whole wheat flour tortilla.  Top with 1 Green container of sliced peppers and onion.
Optionally serve with 1 Tbsp. of Non-fat Greek yogurt, a blue container of shredded cheese or a blue container worth of avocado, i.e. 1/4 avocado  (or mix them).

1 fajita is 1 red, 1 Green, 1 Yellow and an optional blue.

Enjoy!

I must give a shout out to my friend who inspired this recipe.  Her family owns Center Greenhouse, Inc. in my home state of Colorado.  They have some amazing information for those of you with green thumbs and those of you who wish they had them.  Check out their blog at: Power Flowers Blog
